Comments

With Barbara Bickel & Lynne Taylor, both of whom arrived at the cottonwoods about a minute too late to see the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Heavy rains in the afternoon totaled 1.7" here, 2.53" at Mays' hime 1 mile down canyon, and probably 3" on Whitetail Prairie. After the storm the road across Whitetail Prairie was rendered impassable without 4-wheel-drive. George and Lynn May reported it took 5 hours for them to make the last 4 miles home last night in their 4 x 4 vehicle.

  12. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Adult male with complete black frame around throat seen from 30' for about 1 minute. Unlike the Red-naped Sapsuckers in the same and adjacent cottonwoods, this bird showed no signs of molt in the heavy black, neatly-defined breast band. It hitched around the tree before I could photograph it, and before anyone else arrived.
